  • 1package (16 ounces) soft tofu, drained
  • 2tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 green onion (including top), chopped
  • 1/4pound raw medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1/2teaspoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2teaspoons rice wine
  • 1teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1/8teaspoon white pepper
  1. Chop the shrimp in a food processor. Add the remaining mousse ingredients and process until the shrimp are finely diced. Remove the shrimp mousse to a bowl and mix rapidly to incorporate air into the mixture.
  2. Cut the block of tofu in half horizontally; cut each piece in half lengthwise, then crosswise, to make 8 equal pieces. Lay the tofu pieces side by side in a 9-inch glass pie pan or other heat-proof dish. Evenly spread shrimp mousse over each piece.
  3. Place a steaming rack in a wok or saucepan. Add water to just below the level of the rack and bring to a boil. Place the dish on the rack; cover and steam until the shrimp mousse turns pink, about 6 to 10 minutes. Remove the dish from the wok and carefully pour off the cooking juices. Drizzle soy sauce and sesame oil over the tofu, sprinkle with green onions and serve.
